A Suffolk County Grand Jury has indicted a South Boston man in connection with the death of 23-year-old Michael DiMaria, whose jugular vein was sliced by flying glass in a nightclub near Fenway Park this summer, District Attorney Daniel F. Conley said in a statement Thursday.

Hector Guardiola, 25, was indicted for manslaughter and two counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon after prosecutors said he threw a glass at another man after they bumped into each other and argued at the Lansdowne Pub on August 14.

The glass actually missed the man but shattered, sending shards at DiMaria and injuring two other people.

DiMaria, 23, of Hicksville, N.Y., bled to death on the floor of the bar. The other two victims, who were not named, sustained head and shoulder injuries.

According to Conley, bar employees detained Guardiola until police arrived and arrested him. He is being held on $100,000 bail. He will be arraigned in Suffolk Superior Court on November 10.
